An exercise book that teaches the basics of ensemble playing with the Circle of 4ths. It is a unique book for band in that there is only one book for all instruments. There are endless possibilities for using the Circle of 4ths to teach theory, tone, intonation, technique, balance, blend and ensemble awareness and it will teach your students to do all of the exercises in all 12 keys, major and minor. It also uniquely presents warm-up chords and chorales using scale degree numbers or solfege, so that they can be played in all keys helping students build aural skills and improve their understanding of voice leading and function. A multitude of materials that will build individual musicianship and a strong, fundamentally sound band.
